Last Minute Light Show

Last Minute Light Show - Lightening Date Idea.

My husband is crazy in love with lightning! It totally intrigues him more than anything else in this world. I often find late at night or in the wee-early hours of the morning, he will be sitting outside enjoying this thrilling show. I can't lie, I love it too! Even our kids find it fascinating. I do know a few people who are terrified of of the cracklin' sounds and lights, but remember those days you would do anything to snuggle up to the one you love?? Now is your...

Roaring 20’s Date Night

The Roaring 20's group date idea.

Recently, my husband and I were invited to celebrate our friend's 30th birthday party. It is the big year for my husband and all of his friends. Crazy, huh! We were immediately intrigued because it was a different party. It was to be a Roaring 20's party and it was a murder mystery dinner.  Neither of us knew much about that decade, so we had to do some research to figure out what would be appropriate to wear.

The excitement only grew from there, because my husband...

“My Choice, Your Choice” Date

Your Choice, My Choice, everybody wins communication date night idea.

I sure do enjoy a night out on the town, but I also enjoy being at home! I decided my husband and I were in need of a date night at home that was simple, relaxing and electronic free!  We are both, let's say rather addicted to our smart phones and have a tendency to be on them....A LOT!
I told my husband in the morning that once the kids were in bed, we were going to turn everything off and just be together.   I also told him we would each choose one treat and...

Friendly Competition {Happy Wives Club}

Cheapest Date Night Challenge

Hi there!  My name is Fawn and I write over at The Happy Wives Club!  I adore The Dating Divas.  Hands down, my favorite blog to read on the web.  But I must admit some of their blog posts make me feel incredibly uncreative.  Erika’s “Date Wheel,” are you kidding me?  How creative was that?  I love the thought that went into that one!
Unfortunately, my husband, Keith, and I live our lives by our Outlook calendars and have more events and dinners to attend...
